The blog hasn’t been very active at all but I guess that will change soon. My big goal for 2013 was to run the first half of the 2013 SF Marathon. I completed the race and even set a PR on the challenging course. Many people kept on asking me, what’s next? Well, the news is I was selected to be part of the 2014 SF Marathon Ambassador Team. I am so honored to be a part of the group! I applied last September and didn’t think I would get picked due to the popularity of the program. My reasons for applying: to give back to running after conquering Diabetes / High Blood Pressure and showing people that running is for everyone.
I am not a fast runner. On most days, I run an 11:30 – 12:00 pace. Sometimes I run/walk. Most races I am in the last wave. I am proud of that. The fact that I get up, train and finish the race is what matters. Besides changing my physical appearance, I believe that running has given me the confidence to take chances in my career and personal life. I owe so much to running and look forward to the coming year!
